Why ABA? Because it works!! Over 40+ years of published articles exist citing the effectiveness of ABA.
ABA is widely recognized as a safe and effective treatment for autism and other developmental disabilities. It has been endorsed by the Ontario Government. ABA principles and techniques can foster basic skills such as looking, listening and imitating, as well as complex skills such as reading, conversing and understanding another person’s perspective.
ABA techniques can produce improvements in communication, social relationships, play, self care, school and employment. Studies have demonstrated that many children with autism experience significant improvements in learning, reasoning, communication and adaptability when they participate in high-quality ABA programs. Some preschoolers who participate in early intensive ABA for two or more years acquire sufficient skills to participate in regular classrooms with little or no additional support.
Generally, studies found that children who receive intensive ABA treatment make larger improvements in more skill areas than do children who participate in other interventions. In addition, the parents of the children who receive intensive ABA report greater reductions in daily stress than do parents whose children receive other treatments.
